The film will be broadcast in German with Vietnamese, English, and other language subtitles on https://goethe-on-demand.de. After the online premiere, the movie will be available on the website for a week so that the audience can watch as many times as they wish.
‘Greetings from Fukushima’ tells the story of two girls, one German and one Japanese who have to struggle to overcome the disaster.
On March 11, 2011, a magnitude nine earthquake shook the northeast coast of Japan. A tsunami, triggered by the earthquake, disabled the power supply and cooling of three Fukushima Daiichi reactors, causing a nuclear accident. The disaster claimed 16,000 lives. The film is a tribute to victims and survivors.
Telling and listening to stories is a healthy way to overcome isolation and the waiting time until the worst is over, and things get back to normal. Nowadays, films are the popular medium to entertain, create a social experience, and provide fresh food for thought and conversation.
The German Online Film Week is an opportunity for the whole family to come together, cherish the experience of story-telling together and get a valuable topic to talk about. The German films have been respectfully selected for this purpose. They are meant as an invitation to jointly overcome the difficult times we are in.
The Goethe-Institut wishes that the film week is a meaningful gift to local audiences who are observing recently stay-at-home orders.
The trailer of the movie ‘Greetings from Fukushima’ is provided by the Goethe Institut in Hanoi.
